I made a retractable stock for my 10/22 so my children could use the 10/22 and I wouldn't have to get a youth stock for it. This way I can also use the 10/22 and I can adjust the stock for the children.

I used an M-4 four position stock and had a threaded adapter made out of aluminum bar stock.

The adapter has a tongue which fits in a groove I cut in the factory stock. I epoxied the adapter using a drop close to the factory stock drop I then built up the stock grip similar to the factory grip using fiberglass and epoxy.

I then stained the fiberglass and painted the M-4 stock in brown.

An interesting exercise, but seems like the hard way to go. I just bought this, instead:

The stock chassis itself is a Butler Creek sidefolder. The AR stock adapter is the "RugAR-15" sold by a guy on www.rimfirecentral.com; it plugs right into the back of the BC stock. As a bonus, I was able to sell the unused sidefolder parts and recoup some of the cost of the stock and adapter.
